Vowell Movement: Sarah Vowell's The Wordy Shipmates 

NPR contributor and author Sarah Vowell’s latest book, The Wordy Shipmates, offers a history of the Pilgrims for a generation raised on reality TV. The contentious and not so Puritanical group was destined to found a nation that would kick others off the continent, she argues in an authorily intrusive way of seeing the world through her pop cultural fascinations. Vowell reads at NOCCA at 8 p.m. Friday (tickets $10).
